Typically, Maine motels tend to be less expensive than hotels, full service resorts or intimate bed and breakfasts. In Maine, you can find motels with full service properties with spacious outdoor pool areas, balconies, full kitchen suites, to smaller lodging with a more relaxed and secluded feel.
There are some motels in Maine along the coast that offer boat tour or shopping packages. Other motels in Maine are largely found throughout the state near highways or main streets owning the “motor” lodge accommodations. Motels are generally very convenient—pull the car right up to your motel room, unload and relax.
Location is one of the biggest decisions when choosing where to stay on any vacation. Since Maine is blessed with thousands of miles of scenic coastline, picturesque lakes and mountains, and historic old towns, it is hard to find a bad location to stay.
